ACID Pro

Cloud-based music production and audio editing software

About ACID Pro

ACID Pro is a cloud-based audio editing software designed to help businesses manage and edit various audio samples to streamline music production processes. Using the Beatmapper tool, supervisors can determine tempos and time signatures of external audio files and label them according to requirements.

ACID Pro provides a Chopper tool, which allows organizations to re-order, remix or replay tracks to create customized samples and rhythmic variations of originally imported audio files. Professionals can use ACID Morph Pads to browse and apply various analogue audio effects to the master buss or individual tracks. It also lets users perform multitrack audio recordings and compose songs with multiple plug-in instruments.

ACID Pro enables music producers to organize tracks in custom folders and rearrange audio files using the drag-and-drop interface. The software also helps users edit note positions, velocities, pitch bends or controller information, drum maps, and more.

Pros

The biggest advantage it has is its precision in mixing

Cons

What I like the least is that the voiceover recording quality is very poor

Life-long ACID lover

Reviewed on 2023/08/23

Pros

i grew up on ACID, and have been with it through its changes of ownership, years of neglect, and resurgance. previously it was one of the most powerful DAW and audio manipulation platforms in existance, it was doing things protools and cubase could only dream of with regards to timestretching and mapping, and ableton live would not exist without ACIDs innovations. it went throug some rough years but no longer has much of the downsides it used to.

Cons

it fell behind durring the years it was bought and sold multiple times, and as a result it has had to play catch-up in the last several years. i do however encounter the occasional bug, and the last few versions havent done much but bundle in VST's that i dont really want.

Acid Pro was great for prototyping tracks and getting quick compositions out. It had a comprehensive set of decent included effects and instruments but was ultimately let down by instability.

Pros

Acid Pro has always had a great workflow and reasonable included effects and instruments. It pioneered loop manipulation and coined the term acidisation for including tempo information with loops so that they can be easily manipulated and included in tracks of different tempos.

Cons

The constant crashing and program hangs that occur on an all too frequent basis. Even after expecting a hang and constantly saving, the time lost and more importantly losing the flow while trying to be creative were the app killer for me.

I started using Acid Music back in the 90s as a looper, when it was produced by Sonic Foundry, and was astonished to discover that it was a full-blown multi-track recording interface. Once I learned enough about the technicalities of recording, Acid enabled me to put my newfound knowledge of recording, gain-staging, and mixing into practice.

Pros

This is hands-down the easiest DAW to use that - easy to understand menus and drop-downs, as well as obvious toolbars. Almost all features are easily accessed and intuitive to use. it's not overly cluttered with specialized functions that the average musician will never use.

Cons

I feel like trying to use virtual instruments with this interface is a little more challenging than it is with certain other DAWs that I own.

Reasons for Switching to ACID Pro

The price point on Acid is unbeatable. It's sheer ease of use is also unbeatable. It will take a year or two of intense dedication to outgrow Acid Pro.

I used ACID Pro a lot to quickly sketch ideas, and working with loops can speed up inspiration when I'm in a time crunch for client work. I outgrew it and moved on to Cubase and Pro Tools, but I often miss the ease of playing with loops in this application.

Pros

ACID was the first loop-based digital audio workstation (DAW) to hit the market back in the 90s. It was so popular that loop libraries were expected to be released in the "ACID-ized" format. And it was popular for a reason: you could open ACID and get working right away. A very straightforward interface helps facilitate easy songwriting and mixing, and loops simply work in ACID, unlike older products like Pro Tools. It's regularly on sale for less than $100, so it's worth a look for people who do mostly loop-based production and find Ableton Live intimidating.

Cons

ACID can feel a little limited, especially if you want to do more complex MIDI/softsynth composing.
